Kris chats with James Palcik, Director of Education, Safety, and Compliance at Flinn Scientific, about the challenges facing science educators during this pandemic. Palcik discusses the development of Flinn’s new Professional Learning Series, which include webinars offering guidance on the safe reopening of brick-and-mortar school facilities; OSHA guidance courses; and its Lab Safety 101 and 102 sessions, which have been previously deployed to assist thousands of science teachers. Palcik also discusses the recent launch of its Elementary and Science Stem Education Program, which is designed to increase safety awareness across North America — an initiative that has proven to be exceptionally popular. Not every product is made equally, he notes, explaining that items needed during this pandemic, such as facemasks, gloves, and hand sanitizers, differ in quality, and that you should never discount safety. Flinn is committed to providing educators with only the highest quality products in this space, he notes. This episode is sponsored by Flinn Scientific, www.flinnsci.com.
